Jeffrey Attempting to Censor Social Media
Last week on Facebook, one of our Libertarian leaning friends posted an interesting comment. It read…”just defriended a Congressional candidate.” -> view here
By the way, they live in the 4th Congressional District, which further fueled my interest. So I had to inquire…who and why?
Come to find out, the candidate was none other than Christina Jeffrey. The very candidate who claims to be a Tea Party candidate and invokes the friendship of Ron Paul frequently.
Needless to say, for you Ron Paul supporters out there, this does nothing to help your cause.
Apparently their camp was wanting to remove posts from Facebook that they felt were not on point. According to our source, it was communicated with him (“paraphrased”) that they were deleting his posts because their ultimate goal was to win.
“Yesterday, I got an email from her daughter saying that she would be deleting posts that are not ‘on topic’. I started smelling a rat, and told her if she did that I would de-friend Christina both on facebook and in person. Within 10 minutes I got a call and a text from Christina saying that we ‘needed to talk’ …
This morning, I got an email from her daughter stating, in part, that ‘the ultimate goal is to win’.”
WOW!!!! Ultimate goal is to win. Not help better America, not change the ways of Washington. It was all about winning.
And this is not the first time she has tried this.
Earlier in 2009, an anonymous poster on our blog made mention of her little served time as historian in Congress and how she was removed for controversial comments concerning history books that didn’t provide all the differing views of the Holocaust. She was later found to be not in fault, but the particular commenter did not share that.
What happened though is she decided to come after me for allowing the comment to be posted and demanded that I take it down. The point of the comment was true, it just did not share the entire truth. You can view the comment here and the email here.
Have you had similar experiences with Jeffrey? Share them below.
I will grant Paul posts a lot of things, sharing different views. With that said though, she also made the request that he not mention anything about her history, in particular her stint as Historian under Newt Gingrich. My apologies for leaving that out.
